These two Hi Track bulldozers were made from plans I altered from Toys and Joys. There are 60 track pads – each pad has five pieces – for each dozer. All the cylinder work, tracks move, rock ripper on the back works. The dozers are made from soft maple with a spray on finish. These dozers took two months to build. One dozer goes to my grandson and the other goes to my great grandson. These are not toys to be played with but look great on a shelf.

Amazing, well done. Great collector pieces. The heavy hauler is super cool also.

Those are just amazing. I wouldn’t have the patience to build them I don’t believe.

“Look great on the shelf” Looks like you succeeded. They look great no matter where they put them.

I’d hate to give my grandson something so beautiful and tell him he can’t play with it. I know what you mean though, I made mine a dump truck, it was a wreck in two days. LOL
